  • This was ok nothing bad about it but it was not a huge hit with my kids. My fiancee and I finished it off it was kinda bland. - 2/13/13

  • I think the calorie count is wrong on this recipe. Spark gives the calories for cooked lentils....the calories for 1 cup of raw lentils is 678 (not 224).
    Nonetheless, it was delicious.

  • I've made this for years. It's from the More With Less cookbook. My family loves it, but I only use 1 onion and usually increase the herbs. We especially love it with crusty bread. - 3/11/09
